Love Where You Live ~ Since the reopening across our county, we've encountered the pent up demand many predicted. Homeowners took the time to evaluate what is important to them and where they would like to shelter in place if needed again. Many listings are seeing multiple offers due to low inventory, sellers are taking this opportunity to list their home at a price they can be pleased with, and buyers are taking advantage of low-interest rates. We are seeing the usual interest from the Northeast states and Southeast Florida, along with increased interest now from Californians for a multitude of reasons.
So what say you? Are you in the property that makes you feel safe, secure, and refreshed? If not, contact us to discuss the value of your current property or current living situation so we can help you navigate the many choices available and make a smart decision for your lifestyle and finances. We sure Love Where We Live and want you to too!
As always, it's our honor to serve you, please reach out with questions anytime!
Easy fixes for features in that (near) perfect home
As you search for a house, you may find one that seems custom-made for you — except for a few features.
The good news? Many less-than-perfect features need not be deal breakers and can be brought up to your standards with minimal cost or effort. A short list of some of the easiest-to-fix elements of a home:
Cabinetry surfaces: If they’re sound but the finish is outdated, dark or too distressed, a paint job could be the answer. Also, cost-effective: Refacing them at about a third the cost of buying new.
Kitchen back-splashes: These are among the most common DIY projects. Options include everything from wood to stone to metal.
Outdated appliances: Replacing them with new models should be straightforward, and you may be able to negotiate price allowances.
Grungy carpeting: It usually can be easily ripped out and replaced with tile, wood, laminate or new carpeting.
